Is your sweetheart having a birthday soon? Or, you and your wife might be celebrating a special anniversary. No matter the reason that you are shopping for unique jewelry to give as a gift, from shopping at resale stores to selecting antique jewelry pieces, here are some ideas that might help you to buy a perfect gift.
Be Creative in Your Gift Shopping
Think of going to places like resale stores, boutiques, and thrift stores to look for one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces. Even garage sales or yard sales might provide amazing finds. Have you ever been to a pawn shop before? If not, you will probably be amazed at the great finds you will discover there.
And look for antique stores, too. You might consider that antique stores have only furniture in them, but that's not the case. Another idea is to visit estate sales where antique jewelry is being sold. If you think your sweetheart would enjoy selecting her own gift, consider going to little towns close to you where you might find great antique stores. And, of course, you could make those trips by yourself, if you want to keep your gift a surprise.
Select Jewelry That Fits Her Personality
Consider the personality of the gift recipient. For example, if your sweetheart loves things like Victorian-era furniture she will probably be thrilled to receive an antique ring with an intricate design that includes her birthstone. Maybe the gal in your life loves classic styles. If that's the case, think of purchasing pearl earrings, a pearl choker, or a pearl bracelet. Or, if your bank account can swing it, buy her an entire set. If your sweetheart loves unique jewelry, consider finding art deco pieces that have different colored gemstones as part of the design.
Maybe you've been lucky enough to have somebody close to you offer an antique piece of jewelry that you can, in turn, give to your sweetheart. For example, your mother might have an antique bracelet that belonged to her grandmother. If the bracelet needs repairs, don't fret. A jewelry repair person who specializes in fixing antique jewelry will be able to do almost anything to make repairs on any jewelry. For example, if the bracelet your mother gives you needs a new clasp, the jewelry repair person can make that happen. If a stone has been lost in a jewelry item, the repair person can replace it.
